Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Combinatorics

    A branch of mathematics related to determining the number of elements of a set or the number of ways objects can be arranged or combined

  • Components of a vector

    See Component form of a vector.

  • Conic section (or conic)

    A curve obtained by intersecting a double-napped right circular cone with a plane

  • Continuous at x = a

    lim x:a x a ƒ(x) = ƒ(a)

  • Continuous function

    A function that is continuous on its entire domain

  • Extraneous solution

    Any solution of the resulting equation that is not a solution of the original equation.

  • Fitting a line or curve to data

    Finding a line or curve that comes close to passing through all the points in a scatter plot.

  • Instantaneous velocity

    The instantaneous rate of change of a position function with respect to time, p. 737.

  • Inverse sine function

    The function y = sin-1 x

  • Leading term

    See Polynomial function in x.

  • Nautical mile

    Length of 1 minute of arc along the Earth’s equator.

  • NDER ƒ(a)

    See Numerical derivative of ƒ at x = a.

  • Paraboloid of revolution

    A surface generated by rotating a parabola about its line of symmetry.

  • Recursively defined sequence

    A sequence defined by giving the first term (or the first few terms) along with a procedure for finding the subsequent terms.

  • Sequence of partial sums

    The sequence {Sn} , where Sn is the nth partial sum of the series, that is, the sum of the first n terms of the series.

  • Tree diagram

    A visualization of the Multiplication Principle of Probability.

  • Triangular form

    A special form for a system of linear equations that facilitates finding the solution.

  • Vertical asymptote

    The line x = a is a vertical asymptote of the graph of the function ƒ if limx:a+ ƒ1x2 = q or lim x:a- ƒ1x2 = q.

  • Vertical component

    See Component form of a vector.

  • Zero of a function

    A value in the domain of a function that makes the function value zero.
